Trust Us For a Comfortable Root Canal Procedure

Root canal treatment doesn’t deserve its bad reputation. In the hands of a dental veteran like Dr. Fester, it is a beneficial tool to help suffering patients. In fact, most patients report feeling no more discomfort than they do getting a tooth filled. Our whole team enjoys seeing a patient smile again after coming into our office with a painful tooth.

Regular dental cleanings and exams every six months will go a long way toward keeping cavities at bay. However, if tooth decay develops and eventually reaches the soft, inner portion of a tooth (known as the pulp), you can experience intense pain.

These situations usually require root canal therapy. Dr. Fester will make a small hole in the top of the tooth so he can clean out the infected pulp. He will also repair and shape the tooth’s root canals as needed, disinfecting them with germ-killing medication.

Dr. Fester will then seal the canals with a special rubber-like material to help prevent reinfection and further problems. Finally, he will fill the hole on top with a composite material. He’ll recommend a new crown fashioned from either porcelain or zirconium as a finishing restoration. It will fit over the top of the repaired tooth to strengthen and protect it.

Root canals help – they don’t make your pain worse. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
